What Are the Steps for Redeeming Rewards Points From Western Union?

Redeems Rewards Points within the My WU Rewards program from Western Union by logging into your account at WesternUnion.com, visit the Rewards page and click on the Redeem Points Now button. Once on the page, click on one of the available reward listings to redeem the points and receive the benefit, as of 2015.

Western Union’s My WU Rewards program allows you to earn points for completing certain actions within the Western Union service. Earn one point each time you spend $2 on transaction fees or in a qualifying money transfer transaction, and earn additional points for every $2 increment until you hit the program thresholds. You must have at least 30 Rewards Points to begin the point redemption process.

To participate in the program, you must register for an online account with Western Union and enroll in the program, then make all transactions while logged into the account. The rewards for redeeming points may change over time, but they typically include either a monetary reduction in transaction fees or free airtime on a cellphone. Western Union does not offer phone service itself, but it partners with other major carriers to offer discounts on monthly payments or pay-as-you-go call time reloads.
